National legislation

  1. The ILO Library is home to one of the world’s largest collections of national labour legislation. The collection contains consolidated laws, statues, decrees and gazettes for over 180 countries and territories in their original languages.

    The ILO's International Labour Standards Department reviews legislation for its NATLEX database of national labour law. NATLEX serves as an index of the labour laws found in the official gazettes and other legal compilations.

    Check out our guide on National Labour Law for more information on researching legislation at the ILO.
